The United States has reviewed and maintained the terrorist designations of Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Tayyiba (LeT) and Lashkar-i-Jhangvi (LJ), along with ISIL Sinai Peninsula (ISIL-SP) and several other organisations.

In a Media note ahead of the transition of power, the US Department of State said that it has amended the terrorist designations of LJ and ISIL Sinai Peninsula (ISIL-SP) to include additional aliases.

LeT, which carried out the 2008 Mumbai terror attack, was designated as a terrorist organisation by the United States in December 2001. The State Department said LeT has repeatedly changed its name and created front organisations in an effort to avoid sanctions, The treasury department earlier this month said that the US blocked $342,000 in funds of LeT in 2019 as part of its crackdown on foreign terror organisations.
